A major retail project is in the works for the town of Terrell just east of Dallas.
Terrell’s city council today is scheduled to vote to approve the project just east of the intersection of Interstate 20 and U.S. Highway 80.
The Retail Connection and Oakridge Investments are teaming up to build the Crossroads at Terrell, which will include 225,000 square feet in the first phase.
“We have four retail anchors that have letters of intent to create the first regional retail power center drawing from east of Dallas,” said Oakridge’s Justin Allen.
The retail project is adjacent to a 60,000-square-foot Buc-ee’s travel center that will be constructed on 20 acres.
Buc-ee’s is a Lake Jackson retailer with 20 roadside locations, most in southern and central Texas.
The popular chain has been described as the world’s largest convenience store, with locations attracting thousands of customers daily.
